XSL Device Formatting Using the Microsoft XSL ISAPI Filter
(Page 1 of 4 )

Microsoft released version 2.2 of its XSL ISAPI filter at the beginning of March 2002. This version replaces the previous version, 2.1, which was released in February of 2001. The XSL ISAPI filter is an extension to Microsoft's Internet Information Services (IIS) that simplifies the deployment of server-side XSL stylesheets. It automatically runs on the server whenever a special type of file (.pasp) is requested. It supports multiple device types including the web browser, WAP enabled phone, PDA, etc. XSL is used to transform XML at the presentation level, and the output from an XSL stylesheet can be formatted according to the device type requesting it.

The XSL ISAPI filter uses XSL stylesheets to automatically format dynamically generated XML content (via ASP) for the correct device type (HTML, WML, etc), as shown in the diagram below:
